Lawlessness in its various forms
is dealt with in Johnson's oration,
and suggestions are offered for
more effective law enforcement.
“The ultimate enforcement of
laws,” stated Oscar A. Brown, de
bate coach, referring to the sub
ject, “lies not with the officers but
with the communities themselves.
It refers to the spirit of law and
order first manifested by pioneers,
as contrasted with general attitude
of the country today.”
The schools entered in the con
test are: Pacific university, Oregon
Agricultural college, Linfield col
lege, Eugene Bible university, Wil
lamette university, Albany college,
Oregon State Normal school, Paci
fic college, and the University of

Drama Students
Develop Walk Like
Ducks or Sailors
The man who is afflicted with
a peculiar rolling gait acquired
during his war days with the
marines, or the fellow who has a
slight bow effect due to toddling
too soon, used to be noticed,
chuckled at, and scorned by the
mincing co-ed. But suddenly he
finds himself followed by this
same pretty co-ed.
Each morning when he strikes
out toward the campus he is not
disappointed to find that a lit
tle lamb is sure to follow. For
blocks he is pursued. With each
step this damsel makes an earnest
attempt to reproduce this ex
traordinary form of locomotion.
Withering glances and scornful
looks will not beat off this in
This fair damsel’s purpose is
not the idea of shanghaiing him
or even of being companionable
but her foremost thought is to
portray character through a walk
thus get a good grade in one of
her drama classes.

University Brings Spiritual
And Intellectual Creations
In Existence of Student
Twentieth Century is Time
Of Maturity of Oil Other
Epochs in Human History
If the student in the University
has been properly stimulated by his
educational experience he will never
revert to the intellectual and spir
itual plane up6n which he existed
before he entered the University,
even though he goes back to live in
the environment which surrounded
him through high school, was the
opinion expressed by Rabbi Jonah
B. Wise in his assembly address
yesterday on “Some Creative Forces
and their Evidences.”
“The creative forces which have
to do with the University experi
ence are spiritual,” the Rabbi said.
He lauded the work of university
instructors and the tremendous
spiritual power involved in their
work. “A teacher in a university
has a larger spiritual field than any
minister I know,” he said.
Present Century Broadening
“The twentieth century is one
of amenities, it is a time when men
listen to messages through the air
and have contact with remote
masses of unthinkable size. At no
time in the history of the human
race has man been more privileged
to share with his fellow man so
many amenities; never has there
been so many things to take life
away from the narrow way and re
stricting prejudices,” the speaker
He expressed the opinion that
man has gone beyond the primitive
need of physical sign posts to point
the way to a spiritual plane—that
he had no further need of totems,
crouching Buddhas and other sym
bols. “For those who have learned
the language,” he declared, “or
even feebly discerned the way,
icons are not necessary.”
There are periods of new birth
in the history of mankind, the Rab
bi said, which, like the phoenix
bird, rises again from its own ashes.
The sixteenth century was especial
ly typical, in his opinion, with
such men as Rabelais, Sir Thomas
Moore, Luther and Erasmus bring
ing a rejuvenation of human life.
The French Revolution was another
such period, he eaid, when men
worked on a higher plane than even

The aim of the extension divi
sion Monitor is to promote a group
feeling and spirit among the stu
dents of the Extension dj^v|lsion,
particularly the correspondence
students, and to help them realize
that they are a part of the Univer
sity's larger student body, accord
ing to the annual report of the
Monitor which is now opening its
thirteenth year of publication with
the issuance of the thirteenth vol
ume. Last year twelve numbers of
the publication were issued six be
ing special student numbers.
In helping the students, the Moni
tor gives examples of the work of
other students, and carries on round
,table discussions in its columns.
The monthly is the organ of the
extension division bringing one
student in contact with his fellow
students. It is through the columns
of the publication that the several
students learn to know their fellow
students. In a great many cases
extracts from the lesson papers of
different ones have been published.
Special numbers of the Monitor
take into consideration other ac
tivities of the Portland center, and
classroom instruction. Some ex
amples of this type of Monitor are
“Douglas County Local History
Contest.” “High School Dramatics,”
and other bits of welfare work.
Fur Coat Disappears
From Hendricks Hall 1
Late Monday Night
A three-quarter muskrat fur
coat was taken from a suite in
Hendricks hall last Monday. The
coat was the property of Miss
Geraldine Lutz, an occupant of
the hall. Miss Lutz believes the
coat was taken sometime Monday
night as she thinks it was in the
room when she retired Monday
night and someone was in the
room all of Monday afternoon.
A reward is offered for any in
formation leading to the present
whereabouts of the wrap. It is
lined with a light tan-colored
That such thefts are being com
mitted on the campus is to be de
deplored, said Miss Gertrude Tal
bot, head resident of the hall,
in relating the circumstances of
the disappearance of the eoat.
Miss Talbot further stated that
she believed the fact that things
have been and are being stolen
from the students from time to
time should be made known so
that a feeling might be aroused
against such acts. This is the
fourth theft reported among cam
pus houses this year. The other

An article on yeast, written by
Oscar Bichards, teaching fellow in
zoology, has been accepted for pub
lication by the Journal of American
Chemical Society. The article deals
with the effect of calcium sulphate
on the growth and fermentation of
yeast. The effects of salts upon yeast
have been studied by scientists and
the effect of calcium sulphate
salt adds one more to the list of
known salts. Mr. Bichards has
found the maximum amount of cal
cium sulphate in which yeast will
grow best. Yeast will not grow
well with no sulphate or with small
quantities. Nor does yeast grow
well after the maximum amount of
sulphate is reached. The same con

Youth, Hope of World, Says
Mrs. V. B. Demarest
“The spirit of youth, not educa
tion, is the hope of the world,” de
clared Mrs. Victoria Booth-Clib
born Demarest, noted evangelist
and granddaughter of General Wil
liam Booth, founder of the Salva
tion Army, in an address before a
group of students in Villard hall,
yesterday afternoon.
“The character and glory of
youth is purity, strength, simplic
ity, and joy,” said the speaker;
“the purity of knowledge of the
soul, not of ignorance; the strength
to say no to the world and yes to
God; the rugged simplicity which
loves truth and sincerity; the joy
of the bubbling spring, of skipping
lambs, and of the laughter of lit
tle children, not the pleasure of
“Sin is a fact; it must be faced,
and education is not the solution,”
she continued, “but that is not to
disparage the va’ue of education.
For education is a tool dependent in
its application and worth on the
man back of it. ‘An educated
devil is more to be feared than an
ignorant one,’ said my grandmother,
the great Katherine Booth, who was
a very wise woman. Do not di
vorce education from Godl
“Youth is a matter of spirit, not
years; there are children who are
old—old with the knowledge of sin,
and there are old men who shine
with the glory of youth—with the
spirit which typifies it. You can
keep that priceless treasure if you
will,” she concluded, but you can
not keep or recover it apart from
the Lord, Jesus Christ. He was
Himself the Truth; He is the foun
tain of eternal youth.
Whether or not fencing, newly
introduced to the University, will
take the place of swimming and
tennis as the most popular of spring
sports among University women
will be determined at the end of
next week, when all girls will have
designated their preference in the
line of spring sports, according to
information from Miss Florence Al
den, director of physical education
for women. During this week and
next week girls are signing up for
spring sports, stating first and sec
ond choices.
Last spring swimming and tennis
proved most popular among the wo
men, but fencing gives promise of
being in favor this coming
term. Equipment for this di
version is expected to arrive in
time for the beginning of the quar
ter’s work.
Sports to be offered, which will
replace regular gymnasium classes
this spring, are horseback riding,
swimming, tonnis, baseball, volley
ball, fencing, golf, folk dancing,
interpretive dancing, archery and

Seventh Annual Convention
Of Newspapermen Opens
On Campus This Morning
Nash Will Be Guest of Honor
Interesting Collection of
Unique Books Shown
Editors, publishers, journalists,
printers, advertising men and circu

at 9:30 a. in. when Hal E. Hoss,
president ' o£ (the State Editorial
association calls the meeting to
John Henry Nash, guest of honor
of the conference, arrived yester
day from San Francisco and brought
with him books insured for $250,
000. The books as examples of an
cient printing will be shown to the
delegates of the conference. In
his unique collection, Mr. Nash has
volumes dating back to Jenson, one
of the greatest of the Venetian
printers. Jenson lived in the fif
teenth century.
Among the books Mr. Nash has
brought with him is “Eusebius,”
the first book printed in Homan
type. Jenson, the originator of this
type face which has given form and
character to all Homan type, made
this book in 1470.
Bare Books Owned
Mr. Nash owns one of the two ex
tant copies in the original binding
of “Hypnertomachia Poliphili.”
The book was printed in 1499 in
Venice by Manutius and is a most
superb example of harmonizing type
and illustration in the world, say
discriminating critics. The British
Museum possesses the second copy.
In Mr. Nash’s possession is a
volume containing 2000 wood-cuts
by Wohlgemuth, Inventor of etch
ing. The book, the Nuremberg
Chronicle, is an original binding,
vellum over oak boards. It was
printed in 1493.
Most of the collector’s volumes
have been secured from Europe and
England. However one valuable
volume, “Two Odes by Mr. Gray,”
printed by Horace Walpole’s Straw
berry-Hill Press in 1757, was dis
covered in a Los Angeles book store.
Mr. Nash will present to the Uni
versity of Oregon school of journal
ism the first copy of one of his re
cent works. The Twenty-third Psalm
printed in Chaucer Gothic will be
the gift. Mr. Nash will set
up Ambrose Bierce’s “Invocation”
when he returns to San Francisco.
Nash to Speak Saturday
